The NeverEnding Story (1984)

After running from some bullies, young Bastian (Barrett Oliver) finds himself in a used bookstore, where he encounters the mysterious owner who shows him a book, The NeverEnding Story.  He takes it to the attic of his school, where he becomes lost in the exploits of young warrior Atreyu (Noah Hathaway), as he must find a way to save the land of Fantasia from the mysterious Nothing.  It is only when he is too far to “turn back” that Bastian realizes that somehow the fate of Fantasia lies in his hands alone.

Featuring eye-popping practical special effects, this film was Germany’s highest budgeted film at the time.
